With three successive snow storms over the last weekends – including blizzard Nemo that crippled campus but made a great snow day – and another forecast of snow on Friday, the Daily caught up with some of the dilligently working facilities and janitorial staff while they cleared roads and paths to ensure the safety of students.
With police chases, drug busts, and severe blizzards hitting Somerville in the past few months, its sometimes important to remember that the city half our campus is located is still a relatively safe place.
Last week, one police call definitely affirmed the zaniness of the Somerville Police Department’s lives when they received a tip about a “chicken stuck in a snow bank” on February 13th at around 7PM according to the Somerville Journal on Wicked Local.
The fowl friend was rescued from the Shaws employee parking lot by Officer Difava, who “bravely jumped into action and saved the chicken from certain peril,” according to the Somerville Police Department’s website. They later added “Why did the chicken cross the road? To be rescued by Officer Difava apparently.”
